Cardinal Arinze and Communion by Pro-"Choice" Politicians

Cardinal Arinze in his no-nonsense honesty explains:

This was covered by LifeSiteNews who wrote:

April 29, 2014 ( – The question of whether Catholic politicians who support abortion should receive or be denied Holy Communion has been a source of contentious debate amongst many bishops and theologians. But according to one of the Vatican’s most senior cardinals, the answer to the question is so simple that even schoolchildren intuitively know it. 

In an exclusive video interview with this week, Cardinal Francis Arinze observed that he is often asked about pro-abortion Catholic politicians and Holy Communion. “Do you really need a cardinal from the Vatican to answer that?” the cardinal said he tells his questioners. “Is that really a difficult question?” 

Instead, says Arinze, he suggests that people who are confused about the issue should go ask a class of children preparing for their First Communion.

“Explain it to them,” he said. “They will ask you, ‘What is abortion?’ Don’t use euphemism. Tell them what it is. It is killing a child not yet born in the mother’s womb. And then tell them if a person is for that, and says that he will continue to support the killing of such children, should such a person receive Holy Communion?”

The cardinal said that one parish priest told him he tested this out on a First Communion class, and they all responded, “No, he should not!”

“These children did not study dogmatic theology at the Catholic University of America or at the Gregorian university in Rome,” said Arinze. “And they saw immediately that killing an unborn child is wrong!”

Arinze, a Nigerian cardinal, currently serves as Prefect Emeritus of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, having served as prefect from 2002 to 2008. He was widely considered a leading contender to be elected pope at the last conclave.

Canon 915 of the Church’s Code of Canon Law states that those who are “obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.” 

Though some bishops and cardinals have opposed the use of the canon, the Vatican has been clear in upholding it. In 2004, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, then-head of the Congregation for Doctrine of the Faith, wrote a letter to the U.S. bishops exhorting them to deny Communion to pro-abortion politicians after attempting to reach out to them.

Hillary and Obama's "Arab Spring" was Nothing but a Sh_t Sandwich

Young Christian women are facing a greater risk of being kidnapped by extremists, tortured, and even forced to convert to Islam since the Arab Spring ended in 2011.
This year already has seen a spike in the incidents, according to a report by the non-profit advocacy group International Christian Concern. It has been estimated by the ICC and other watchdog groups in the region that there have been 500 reported cases of young women being attacked by Muslim men since 2011, but unreported cases could send the figure much higher.

When the Saints Go Marching In . . . and "when the moon turns red with blood" prophecy

Ever Wanted to Follow Along with these Traditional Christian Tune Lyrics?

Yep, TRADITIONAL.  Does anybody in the demoRAT party, after booing God 3x in their DNC convention, really believe a single word of these lyrics?:

O when the Saints go marching in
When the Saints go marching in
O Lord, I want to be in that number
When the Saints go marching in

And when the sun begins to shine
And when the sun begins to shine
O Lord, I want to be in that number
When the Saints go marching in

When the moon turns red with blood
When the moon turns red with blood
O Lord, I want to be in that number
When the Saints go marching in

On that hallelujah day
On that hallelujah day
O Lord, I want to be in that number
When the Saints go marching in

O when the trumpet sounds the call
O when the trumpet sounds the call
O Lord, I want to be in that number
When the Saints go marching in

Some say this world of trouble
Is the only one we need
But I'm waiting for that morning
When the new world is revealed

When the revelation comes
When the revelation comes
O Lord, I want to be in that number
When the Saints go marching in

By the way, FOUR Blood Moons are predicted: HERE

The Global Warming Political Hoopla

The political left would like to say:

"Navy jet sonic booms = global warming"
"Plate tectonic activity = global warming"
"Solar flare activity = global warming"
"Hangnail = global warming"

They do this because nobody challenges them.  They do it because they are ideologically blind to a scripted leftist agenda and will make up any cockamamie story to achieve it.  Global warming is their story and like Ronal Reagan said:

"The problem with our liberal friends, is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so."

More policies by the Obama administration are forthcoming to implement sweeping changes to American industry.  Changes that are couched in the myth that global warming is manmade and that it will destroy the planet.  Despite the claims, global warming has not had the consensus of the scientists.  In fact, the global warming political football is unraveling:

That was illustrated by Wednesday's release of "Climate Change Reconsidered II," a study by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change, which draws its conclusions from thousands of peer-reviewed papers, and which finds global warming to be an entirely manageable, if not beneficial, change in the climate. 
The report stands in stark contrast  to the U.N.'s  latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report  of March 31, which predicts "severe impacts"  from climate change, but which was toned down from earlier IPCC reports that predicted an array of global catastrophes resulting from the proliferation of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere. 
The IPCC reports have, through the years, stood as the unassailable foundation for the Obama administration regulatory policy on global warming. "The debate is settled. Climate change is a fact," Obama said in his 2014 State of the Union Address. 
"The dirty little secret  is , we are now at 17 years and 8 months of no global warming," says Roger Pilon, Vice President  for Legal Affairs at the Cato Institute. "Their models have failed year in and year out, " he says of the scientists who comprise the 97 percent consensus the administration frequently cites. 
The NIPCC report  finds: 
-- That warming from greenhouse gases will be so small as to be indiscernible from natural variability. 
-- The impact of modestly rising CO2 levels on plants, animals and humans has been mostly positive. 
-- The costs of trying to limit emissions vastly exceed the benefits. 
The NIPCC report was immediately assailed by administration supporters.

It gets better:
Speaking in Portland, Oregon Tuesday night [of course] Hillary Clinton said to vigorous applause, "Climate change is a national security problem, not just an environmental problem."

Then we have these doozies from our very own Secretary of State, and fellow Catholic John Kerry: 

John Kerry on climate change: “Denial of the science is malpractice”

The costs of inaction are catastrophic,” he said. At the same time, he emphasized global responsibility for the problems we’re facing. ”No single country causes climate change,” he said, “and no one country can stop it.”

“The clock is ticking,” he added. “The more we delay, the greater the threat. Let’s make our political system wake up and let’s make the world respond.” 

- Paris France, March 31, 2014
He has more:
“Leading the way toward progress on this issue is the right role for the United States, and it’s the right role for the Department of State,” Kerry wrote. “That’s why I’ve decided to make climate change the subject of my first Policy Guidance as Secretary of State.”
“This isn’t just a challenge, it’s also an incredible opportunity,” Kerry added. “And the Policy Guidance I’m issuing today is an important step in the right direction.”
“Lead by example through strong action at home and abroad… Conclude a new international climate change agreement… Implement the Global Climate Change Initiative… Enhance multilateral engagement… Expand bilateral engagement… Mobilize financial resources… Integrate climate change with other priorities,” according to Kerry.
“One thing’s for sure: there’s no time to lose,” Kerry added. “The scientific facts are coming back to us in a stronger fashion and with greater urgency than ever before.”
- March 10, 2014
and more, this time stooping to condescending name calling, fear mongering, bullying, and embarrassingly outright unprofessional sandbox behavior:
US Secretary of State John Kerry recently said that climate change is as big a threat as terrorism.
Speaking to students in Jakarta, Indonesia, Kerry said, “Think about the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. It doesn’t keep us safe if the United States secures its nuclear arsenal while other countries fail to prevent theirs from falling into the hands of terrorists. The bottom line is this: it is the same thing with climate change.”
He continued, “The science is unequivocal, and those who refuse to believe it are simply burying their heads in the sand. We don’t have time for a meeting anywhere of the Flat Earth Society.”
- Jakarta Indonesia, February 17, 2014

Yet John Kerry says this in the face of glaring scientific opposition to "manmade global warming."  Even the co-founder of environmentalist movement Greepeace, Patrick Moore, had this to say:
“There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years.” He added that environmental groups like the one he helped establish used faulty computer models and scare tactics in promoting claims man-made gases are heating up the planet. 
Even if the planet is warming up, Moore said it would not endanger mankind because humans are a “subtropical species” anyway.

In fact The Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change's 1,000-page report documenting global warming’s beneficial impact on the biosphere, Climate Change Reconsidered II: Biological Impacts, provides a comprehensive analysis of global warming’s impacts on plants, terrestrial animals, aquatic life, and human well-being.  The new volume is the fifth produced by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change. A sixth volume, Climate Change Reconsidered II: Human Welfare, Energy, and Policies, is scheduled for release later this month.  More than 30 scientists served as authors and reviewers for the new volume. The volume cites more than 1,000 peer-reviewed studies supporting the conclusion that global warming is not causing substantial harm to the biosphere.

So really, while all the liberals like to play the fear monger card so readily, here there is absolutely not a doubt that the left is fear mongering and bullying their agenda through in spite of the scientific opposition to global warming policies.
